While COVID-19 restrictions remain in place all KCGIS classes are presented remotely, via ZOOM. To maximize class effectiveness, class size is limited to just seven students. Don’t get left behind – register today for Introduction to ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Pro Quick-Start for the GIS Professional, and Intermediate ArcGIS Pro!
Beginner-level ArcGIS Pro:
This is a beginner-level GIS class and introduces participants to fundamental GIS concepts using the ArcGIS Pro software. The class begins with the basics of navigating the map and walks through the process of creating maps, optimizing the display of the data, and performing spatial analysis. At the completion of this class, those attending will have a strong foundation in GIS concepts, the basic use of ArcGIS Pro, and have an understanding of the strengths of performing spatial analysis with a GIS.
Audience: This class is for anyone who is new to GIS and wants to create maps and explore data in ArcGISPro.
Transition to ArcGIS Pro for experienced GIS users:
With fast processing, enhanced 3D capabilities, and a whole new interface, ArcGIS Pro, Esri’s next-generation GIS software, promises a wealth of potential for experienced GIS users. This class is designed to help existing ArcMap users get up and running in Pro as quickly as possible. Become familiar with the new project structure, understand the intuitive and dynamic interface structure, and learn how to do all of your favorite tasks in a whole new way.
Audience: Those who are comfortable with ArcGIS Desktop (ArcMap) and want to learn how to use ArcGIS Pro, Esri’s next-generation GIS software, in order to incorporate it as part of their overall GIS arsenal.
Intermediate and Advanced level ArcGIS Pro:
Intermediate ArcGIS Pro Overview (three days)
One of the things that makes ArcGIS so useful is the tremendous amount of data available to map and analyze. In the Intermediate ArcGIS Pro class you will learn to find, connect to, create, manage, and analyze that data. You will learn to search government sites for available GIS data, import non-GIS data formats, and to connect your maps to non-spatial spreadsheets, database tables, and other file formats. For example, linking parcels to scanned documents like deeds, and attaching photographs to road hazard locations. You will also learn to create, maintain, and manipulate your organization’s internal data to keep the data relevant, up-to-date, and useful. Finally, this class will also teach you how to present your GIS data by focusing on map labeling techniques and layout skills.
Audience: Those who are comfortable with the basics of ArcGIS Pro, Esri’s next-generation GIS software, and want to learn more about how to find, connect to, create, maintain, and display GIS data.
